December 26 – Soul Food
What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul?

Was it the best food I’ve eaten in 2010? Probably not. Was it the healthiest? No. But as far as the best dining experience of the year, it can’t be topped.
This was Thanksgiving dinner. We sat out on a porch, everyone in my immediate family was there, and we sat around for hours just being present. It was great.
The Question Is…
What didn’t I eat this year? I ask that not to make the point that I ate everything and loved it, but the fact that I made some dietary choices to not eat some things. That has been more powerful for me than anything. I’ve really cut down on the desserts that I eat, I make much smarter choices as to what I eat at restaurants, and I’ve started eating a lot more meals but in smaller portions.
So what did I eat? Fruits and Veggies! Those are definitely something that I want to eat more of in 2011.
